Dave Winer offers an interesting post on his vision of the future of news on television. He sees a time when viewers get to control their personal view of the news. By providing preference information, they would see the kinds of stories they’re most interested in.
He suggests it would become a “river of news,” much like some RSS readers offer currently for text-based information:
I could see MSNBC including stories produced by CNN, and sharing revenue with them. The goal is to get the best news experience tailored to the interests of specific users.
Certainly thought-provoking, but I have a hard time seeing competing networks offering each others’ video on a regular basis. Nevertheless, the whole post is worth a read because it will make you think.
